Leipzig based artist Unclean recently made his first appearance on our label. He has made his way into our sonic family pretty fast. We couldn’t wait to present his second EP to the world.
More and more his relationship with his machines becomes clear, sculpting his signature sound further and further whilst at the same time blurring out the line between two separate entities. A transhumanist relationship is being formed as it’s no longer clear where the human end and the machine begins and vice versa.
‚Frozen’ opens up shop and it fires you right up with its rambunctious, mechanical stampede. ‚Post Hospital Days’ sounds feverish and can’t be denied. It will have you reach for your post op pain and anti inflammatory meds. ‚Godolphin Cross’, perhaps a reference to Kerrier District, sounds like the primordial birth place of something new. The thuddy rhythm of ‚Choice’ is the backbone of a slowly shifting mechanical mantra. ,Clandestine’ has the cinematic quality of a foggy harbor at night, stacks of containers, barb wire, … Final track ‚Yuck’ is perhaps the most playful and (mechanical) funky track we have heard from Unclean up until now. Hats down for this immersive EP!
